I got an email yesterday announcing a “Foreclosure Prevention Campaign” from NeighborWorks and the Ad Council:
Nothing is worse than doing nothing.
Foreclosures are a very serious problem in our country. We estimate that a staggering one million families will face foreclosure this year.
NeighborWorks and the Ad Council are launching a new Public Service Advertising (PSA) campaign to reach at-risk homeowners and encourage them to get free, confidential financial counseling by calling 888-995-HOPE, a foreclosure prevention hotline provided by the Homeownership Preservation Foundation.
By highlighting the effects that foreclosure has on the entire family, the PSAs remind homeowners that if they’re “not facing their mortgage issues things will only get worse. Call 1-888-995-HOPE now. Because nothing is worse than doing nothing.”
Everyone loses with foreclosure just as everyone wins when communities are vibrant places all are proud to call home. We encourage you to share this link with your colleagues and friends.

One million foreclosures is scary. A hotline seems like a great resource, to make sure people in danger of foreclosure get all the advice they can to help them prevent it.
